recently, two billionaire-backed groups, one associated with the koch brothers, one with karl rove's network of mysterious givers, these two groups donated over 60% of grover norquist's budget. i mean, isn't that what's really going on with the system, that the lobbyists chiefly presenting a more -- preventing a more equitable tax system is beholden to the plutocrats? >> money plays way too big a part in our political system today. you know, from both sides. you know, there's way too much money coming into it -- that there's no control over it, that what you have -- well, let me tell you -- in my book, bill, i probably have the most extreme position on this than anybody, because what i have proposed in terms of political campaigns, that no money should come from any source other than from individual human beings. i would get rid of political action committee money, political party money, labor union money, corporate money. you know, i would go down to small amounts that are instantly reported, all transparent. i think we have to do that, because it is this money pouring in -- what

. >> norquist's big backers are republican operatives, cross roads gps, the superpack led by kingpin karl rove and the center to protect patient rights. closely tied to the ultra conservative cook brothers. they account for a majority of the budget and there's no sign that they're running scared. norquist truly believes that best way to grow the economy is to tame big government. he told me recently he will be vindicated no matter how many politicians break the pledge. what happens if they break the pledge? you have money behind you. you pile on and try to get defeated in the next election? >> these are self enforcing. why? because the american people, the elected people who they want to reform government rather than raise taxes. >> norquist is clearly looking toward the 2014 midterm elections. one high profile figure from the fix the debt movement knows that norquist's clout is clearly waning. >> i don't view this as some -- as the end of grover norquist. i don't think he suddenly disappears. but i think his ora of invincibility has largely shattered. >> so can grover convince his pledge sign

government of some sort, i think syria really could descend into the realm of warlordish and violence, roving militias. host: would assaad and his family in search for political asylum in another country? guest: no one really has the answer to that question but there has been speculation over the last week that there have been inquiries made into asylum in somewhat american countries. ecuador and others. it's hard to know. it's hard to know the workings, the character. is this someone who could eventually simply walk away? or do we do this as an existential crisis and therefore we will only go in feet first. he has said and he is of syria, born in syria, will buy in syria. that suggests there could be a planned exit that silence is not possible. thee's also the issue of international community and the need for accountability. syria is accused of having undertaken crimes against humanity, war crimes, and so forth, so it's hard to imagine and he would be granted immunity or anything of that sort. host: we conclude our segment with mona yacoubian, in middle eastern specialist from stimson center
-- dan concludes his column this way -- right below that is karl rove's weekly column in the wall street journal. "what obama is really bargaining for" is the headline. that caller of this morning in the wall street journal. this is gary in ohio on our independent line. caller: good morning. i feel that the united states is divided. just like your show, you have a republican member, democratic member, independents number. as long as we can -- they can divide us into 3 or four groups, they are going to do with a one- two. just like at the conventions for both parties, how on the screen they read off of, they took a vote and had it scripted on the screen what was going to happen. they already had the answer on the screen. you get all this stuff out of d.c. and no one has said a word for six months about libel. -- libor. guys th these guys have been setting the bank rates 40 years. nobody gets in trouble or goes to jail. there is no law in washington. they are running the guns. it's up about gunrunning. there is as much dope down there as there is gunrunning. host: thank you for calling. fr
politically. and apparently, obama doesn't want to do that. >> host: you write, if karl rove was george w. bush's brain, then david axlerod is the barack obama's homer. >> guest: his what? >> host: homer. >> guest: that's a pretty good line i wrote there. [laughter] well, he is his homer. >> host: what do you mean by that? >> guest: what i mean is david axlerod is a brilliant creator of personal stories for politicians. so when barack obama ran in twaipt, -- in twaipt, he didn't have a record to run on, because he hadn't done anything. what he did have to run on was his personal story. the son of an african, black african and a white middle-american mother. a man who sought his identity and found it, who have raised by his, these saintly grandparents and so forth and so on. this was a story, a homerric story, if you will, because homer was with known for talking about taking a trip and coming to some understanding of one's self. this was the story that david axlerod fashioned for obama to run on, a brilliant story. the problem is, in 2012 there is no such story. we've seen that story, we
by norquist. norquist far more powerful than karl rove and fox news. >> you do believe that? >> much more. he could destroy any republican who goes against the pledge. he's really powerful. i have known grover for years. >> even though democrats won the presidential election? doesn't that change the calculus? >> he would say these people are all safe seats if they don't get against the pledge. norquist has the division so to speak. he could destroy any republican who says the word tax increase. has he said -- he said if they're seduced by democrats in pure thoughts this is the so-called i can smell pornography when i see it. this is pornography for grover norquist. he can smell it when he sees it. he will target. he will destroy republicans who go against the pledge. he's much more powerful than any individual republican. and individual ceo. let's just face it. i've always felt he was the most powerful person in the class of '76 at harvard. enjoyed his success because he was a fellow member of the harvard crimson. i just disagree with him. terrific guy. >> with friends like that -- >> with al
